Skipper from Bangladesh Tamim Iqbal was fined 15 percent of his fee for a level 1 violation of the Code of Conduct of the International Cricket Council (ICC) during the third ODI against Sri Lanka in Dhaka on Friday.
Sri Lanka won the final ODI with 97 tracks, but Bangladesh won the series 2-1.
Iqbal was found to have violated Article 2.3 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Staff, which deals with “the use of sound obscenity during an international match”.
In addition, an insufficient point was added to Iqbal’s disciplinary protocol, for which this was the first violation in 24 months.
The incident happened on the 10th of Bangladesh’s inning, when Iqbal used inappropriate language after a failed review of his caught dismissal.
A statement from the ICC said that “Tamim acknowledged the violation and accepted the sanction proposed by ICC Referee Neeyamur Rashid and did not need a formal hearing. . “
Level 1 violations carry a minimum penalty of official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 percent of the player’s match fee and one or two retreat points.
